What I learned in the Darkroom Master Class yesterday. Here are two of the prints I made yesterday in this workshop. It was a good day. The top print being an attempt to improve the lower work print by balancing the left side with the right side by improving shadow details with dodging. There were only three of us including the instructor. Three old darkroom dinosaurs. The students observed the Master making a print from the evaluation of the negative, test print, work print and then the process of making a fine print. Saw a demonstration of cutting a mask for specific dodging, selective burning in, split filtering and then bleaching to improve some highlights. In between we discussed photography, aesthetics, music, movies, broke for lunch and then came back to work on prints of our own with some guidance. A good day.
